A child with bubbles  other a plethora of play opportunities. They are reaching, while balancing and working on fine and gross motor skills while she they try to catch a bubble. At In The Beginning Child Development and Preschool, children are exposed to a lot of different age appropriate development activities that are both fun and challenging.
I found that during a recent SEN session bubbles were a fantastic tool , for example with prepositional language  for example when I was blowing the bubble the child said.

"The bubbles are in the box"

Fantastic this was such a surprise to me and made me feel very proud as all my hard work and theirs was clearly paying off. Bubbles are such a cheap resource that you should never me without a bottle of bubbles.

Its ideal for working on their fine and gross motor skills especially when you encourage them to pinch the bubbles between their thumb and forefinger.

I love bubbles do you ?

Bubbles fun.
